Iglidur is a compound material out of a thermoplastic alloy, reinforced by a network made of composite fibers and homogeneously interspersed with solid lubricants. This leads to a high-strength material with regard to pressure resistance, heat resistance and creep resistance. The solid lubricants integrated in the slide bearing ensure a direct lubrication - even in starting movements when conventional bearings do not show a continuous lubricant surface.
Due to these advantages all Cargolifts with lifting capacity 2.000 kg – 2.500 kg are equipped with IGUS bearings (except the mechanical link). Despite the self-lubricating characteristics we recommend to keep the lubrication intervals.
We ask for your understanding that a mixture of old and new bearings might occur in the transitional period. It does not impact functionality. Nevertheless we try to omit it. In case of questions we are pleased to answer.
